Sharp X68000: The best 16-bit home computer?

A few years ago, while looking for the best arcade to home conversions, I came across the above Retro Hardware video breaking down the Sharp X68000. Powered by the same technology as Capcom’s CP System arcade boards, this Japanese only home computer received some of the most accurate, arcade perfect ports of it’s era, including Ghouls and Ghosts (Capcom), Strider (Capcom), Final Fight (Capcom), Street Fight II Dash (Capcom) and the definitive version of Akumajo Dracula (Konami).
